About Me

Hi there & welcome to Annie's Place. A place inspired by and named after my late Grandmother Annie. Somewhere I can be creative, and share my love for all things handmade. I like nothing better than sitting with hook & yarn, crafting something home spun & completely unique, or rustling up some yummy baked goodies. I live in a town with a beautiful embankment, situated on the River Great Ouse. You may know me as CosyKitty on Ravelry. Why not stop a while.....?!!

May is whizzing by, and I'm looking forward to the sunshine and warmer temperatures promised toward the weekend. I've been a bit of a home bod these last few weeks. Trying to get on top of all the little jobs that need doing. I seem to spend my life sorting laundry, elbow deep in a bowl of washing up, or with a duster and can of Mr Sheen in hand. Exciting life I lead.....

Northampton Guildhall

Though I did manage to escape the humdrum for a day out with my Sister recently, to the Vintage Fair held at the rather spectacular Northampton Guildhall. We had a good nose amongst the stalls, and marvelled at the ladies from the vintage hair lounge offering the cutest up dos for both young and old. 

After working up an appetite wandering around the fair, we decided to grab some dinner at Buddies. The menu was vast, but we both opted for a burger with everything. To say we were fit to burst afterwards was an understatement. Thoroughly enjoyed.....

I'm still working on my big granny blanket. I haven't bought any new yarn for months, as I need to concentrate on the wips I have yet to complete. The temptation is always there though. That nagging urge to treat yourself, especially when you're trawling Pinterest, exposing yourself to SO many gorgeous pics. It's impossible not to get drawn in & seduced by the endless possibilities, of potential new hooky projects.

Before I go, I know many of you are often on the look out for new yarn stockists. Well I have a wee treat for you today as the Big Wool Shop would like to offer my readers a 10% discount on their first order using the code BLOG10, valid until 07/06/2014. Worth a look......xx


  1. Looks like you had a great time at the Vintage Fair. Blanket is coming a long nicely too. It is always such a temptation to start another project. I'm not going to confess as to how many I have on the go at the moment.

  2. Your blanket is so beautiful Sharron, such a beautiful mix of muted colours, I love it !
    Glad you got to treat yourself to a girls day out.
    Have a good week,

  4. A vintage fair sounds like a lovely way to spend the day. Love your blanket.

  5. I love that new blanket and that grey edging! I too have lots of pre-brought wool to use up. I'm trying to make it work with want I want to make, but really I think my tastes have changed slightly....and really I want to buy something else. Love your soft colours there. Heather x

  6. So nice to have a day out now and again! What beautiful windows the Northampton Guildhall has, caught my eye immediately.
    Have a lovely day .. hope the sun is shining and it's warm :)

  10. I really enjoy the look of this blanket, I makes my heart sing! I am a lover of grey and the tones of the squares work so beautifully with the last round. Super job!
